Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes
After living through the bombing of Hiroshima, a little girl named Sadako (who loves to run) gets sick from the poisonous gases still inside her. Even though Sadako's friend isn't superstitious, she comes to visit Sadako in the hospital and tells her that if she makes 1,000 paper cranes, she will get better. This is a sad book but it shows the life of a girl who really lived and the love shown to her. I really liked this book!
